THEFEMININECHEST: InspirationalWednesday

BE PATIENT.

I remember when I was in high school and we'll have individual project works.
Especially after the theory has been taught.
Before the individual project work, the teacher would have taken us through a general one. So the individual project work was for us to try our hands on and practice what we had been taught.
Now, during the project work,  the teacher sits at a corner waiting to be called by someone to help with a difficulty encountered.
We all had difficulty at one stage or the other. But we'll wait patiently, till she takes care of everyone, one after the other.

 I have always associated the above experience at school with how God answers prayers.
There are so many people in the world, and if not everyone, the majority of us are praying to God for something, calling on Him to help us with one difficulty or the other.
It's not like it's impossible for God to answer our prayers all at once...at the same time.
But just like in the class everyone waits patiently for her turn to have the teacher's attention, I believe it's the same with God too.

Before you knelt down to pray or request for what you might need, someone had just finished praying and making his or her request for the umpteenth time without receiving an answer from God yet.
If humanly, we think it's unfair that the teacher responds to someone before the first person to call, how much more God?

Long and short, in the same way we have patience to wait for our turn in class, let's have that same patience and even more to wait for God's time, because God's time is always the best!

Enjoy the rest of the week!

#InTheLandOfImaginations: WHAT GOD TOOK FROM ME

Efe spun around in her room, as she looked at how beautiful she looked in her dress. She'd carefully chosen this orange circle dress just to look her best. Orange was Ebo's favourite colour and it will suit the occasion best she thought.

She paused... Something was missing... She stood still carefully scrutinizing her look, trying to figure out what was missing... She folded her arms across her chest and tapped her lips with her right index finger... "Ah haaa!" she finally let out.. She needed a necklace and she knew just which one to wear. She'd wear the one Ebo bought her on her last birthday.

She took the clothes off, took her towel and dashed into the bathroom. As she bathed she thought about Ebo, about her and about them.
They grew up together in the same neighborhood, went to the same schools even up to the University. Everyone, including her knew how a perfect match they both were for each other, but the problem was, Ebo didn't seem to see it. She'…

#EchoesOfInspiration: LOTTERY CALLED LIFE

I don't know how old you are but I know that more than half of your life has been used either for giving up, thinking about giving up, almost giving up and thinking you could never get there, you could never get to get stuff done or simply that life wasn't worth it at all

Quick reminder: you're not alone

Which one amongst us asked to be given birth to?

Reality check: none of us!

But we're here anyway, so what are we going to do? Sit down, just grow up and eventually die, or make the most out of this "unfortunate" situation called life?
I'd take the latter. You know why? Because life is like the lottery and  you have to be in it to win it as said in the movie "NAKED"

Many of us have given up on love and relationships. We don't want it anymore because someone hurt us so bad. So in order to avoid getting hurt again, we'd choose to remain single.
Do you know that means you've lost the game? That makes you the loser, that makes you a quit…

#EchoesOfInspiration: GOD IS A TAXI DRIVER

Last night I met God. He was just getting off the phone with someone.
"in an hour's time" He said roughly, yet calmly, then he ended the call. I bet it was a prayer he was answering. (Thinking about it, that one hour he said, could mean one year oo)

When I saw him. I just knew he was the one I'd go with. He laughed a lot and for some reasons, I was drawn to him.
So after boo negotiated the fare,  I took my good bye kiss which he always, carefully plants on my forehead in the same way you put an egg down.
"Keep the jacket" he said smiling as I opened the door lazily and sat at the back seat

After sitting, I took a moment to scan the seat, as my ears caught the sound of a favorite gospel song playing and I'd never seen a taxi so dirty like the one I sat in.
"Oh what happened here?" I asked calmly though with displeasure.
"Oh a woman I just dropped off" he replied shrugging his shoulders like he really wasn't bothered about it, no, …
